[I had a bad feeling dropping a message with a "loosely connected"  
topic into another thread.]

When saving Illustrator files as EPS you have the choice to select  
the Illustrator version, including a warning that you may loose some  
features when saving as an older versions.

I also remember that there was a case when dashed lines from an  
Illustrator EPS "escaped" from the encapsulation and created dashed  
lines elsewhere after distilling to a PDF. This was with a certain  
combination of FrameMaker and Acrobat versions. What I and others  
learned was that EPS encapsulation is not always encapsulating the EPS.

In other words, I hear advice that you should stick to a certain  
Illustrator version level for all EPS graphics unless your FrameMaker  
version is younger than your Illustrator version - presumably to give  
engineers the chance to improve the EPS import filter (or the PS  
creating engine?).

Or is that a myth? Will FrameMaker 7.0 without a problem process EPS  
files at Illustrator CS3 level?

If there is a dependency, I am looking for a compatibility table that  
shows which versions of Illustrator EPS files are supported by which  
version of FrameMaker.
